Almost the End of February!

Friday, February 22, 2013

It's been a busy month - getting back to work, catching up with the bookkeeping, getting the new year started for incoming students & students that have to finish. I'm used to being the 'fill-in' gal. Through no effort of my own, I've become the Office Manager! Ouch! Not a position I wanted, that's for sure. I only wanted to work a couple days a week but here I am working full time. For this year anyway. Since I'm about to be 62, I suppose I should relax & enjoy it for the next three years & slide into retirement. I can still do the books for a couple of small businesses to keep my hand in & continue with my Income Tax business every spring. I don't get really busy at work till the middle of April & by then the taxes will all be filed.

I've begun to think seriously about my diet. My ankles have been swollen all winter with is unusual for me. Either I have to increase my BP medications or adjust my diet & exercise programs. I gained weight being immobile with sciatica & it's really bothering me. Today, I pick up my new FITBIT which will record every step I take without a nasty armband that pinches & gives me blisters! I got the cheap one in hot pink that only records calories, steps & mileage for now. I wanted the one that you wear as a bracelet but I'm not sure my phone will work with it so for now, I got the cheap one. I need to know how many steps I take & I need that instant feed back. I'm also going to check out the DASH diet. I do eat a lot of fruit & veg but I've been buying takeout breakfasts & I need to stop. Back to oatmeal again. So, here I go once more - gadget in hand & following the rules for a change!!

    Enjoy your fitbit. I love mine (I have the cheap one too). I find I take more steps when I wear it! Have a great weekend!

    Yeah, I love take breakfast as well. Not sure where you live, but Subway has a great selection of breakfast sandwiches that are under 350 calories with lots of veggies. Good luck with your job - it does not sound bad at all.
